the obama administration gave out wrong information from the public about what happened. this is why we care. it comes down to trust. was that a mistake or was it intentional? and there are other reasons why americans care about the government vent laying the truth on benghazi. first in the pursuit of justice, for the four victims, the truth is imperative. did our government try to help them or not? clearly, this was not some he protest gone wrong. so, were there signs, warning signs that we needed to protect those people better that went ignored? on that very night that those calls for help go ignored and if so by whom? justice for the victims. part of why we care about this story. both as the journalists and as a nation. also the entire incident spotlights security that our trusted officials are giving to the super stars of our democracy. diplomats, the people who take our way of life out into the world and walk it out. do they have what they need to stay safe or in this case stay alive? security for our carriers of justice, another part of the story that makes us care. and finally governm

the elevator of success, but to go down it. they will do far worse than their parents' generation before, and that's not the american way. president obama, himself, without the advantage of having a book that got him out of debt would have been in student debt, himself, not long before he became a united states senator. so this is an incredible scenario for the students of this country. while we're selling them pipe dreams, we have to fig wrure ou way to pump up this economy so people are able to live and students are able to get reductions in the kind of costs put on them as they try to pursue an education. >> all the americans killing student debt, one in five are between $25,000 and $50,000 on student loans. how are you supposed to get started in life if you're way down by that volume of debt? >> it's nearly impossible. you're leveraging your future. you're borrowing against whatever money that you'll be able to make, and this is why people, you know, can't not only get out of debt, martin. given the default rate of the student loans, you can see students can't afford to pay them back

serves at both parties to go in and do a 30- day top down review to make sure this never happens -- >> reporter: the president had no prior knowledge bo the issue and only learned about the scandal from the media. >> >> defending the obama administration's response to the deadly attack on the benghazi consulate. the administration released 100 pages of e-mail outlining the talking points used to brief the public on the attack. the e-mails show there was no attempt to distort what was known about the attack at the time and he said the president was kept fully informed at the time it was unfolding. >> somehow, the president he allowed this to happen. it is offensive -- someone made the decision to put an embassy and a konsyl in a war-torn country with no host country to guard that, leaving the guarding and the security up to a militia. that decision alone was a terrible and tragic error. >> the chairman of the house oversight committee has -- . four americans were killed, including u.s. ambassador to libya, christopher stevens. . >>> a big explosion in a small wyoming town. what ca
. they are not close to him. they thought he was sailing down the river on entitlements. the next thing to watch, guys, is keystone pipeline. i think obama has to cave on that. >> now, the government has all the sources that the associated press has had for the past two months. just imagine the lack of work that somebody like charlie gasparino or our own elizabeth macdonald, the difficulty that they would have collected the information if their sources knew that the government would have access to their names and information. dennis: it will go back to base. cheryl: we are always watching the markets. we do it every 15 minutes here on fox business. paul christopher, wells fargo chief mobile strategist is joining me now. we have the s&p 500. right now we are at 1658. you are calling for a decent return for the s&p 500. >> we are looking for the s&p to finish between 1575 and 1625. we think that is a pretty good return. in the meantime, we like set the goals. this is where it gets crucial. look at a one-year chart. bouncing back.one quite well cheryl: what about a joke? what about china? i want to show
, but are they that irritating? >> they are, but we shouldn't say the story too loud because the obama administration could get the idea of levying taxes on business anchors. >> they are trying to tax conservatives. >> exactly. they are already well down the road. >> silly to tax people because of the life choice, but today's hipster is tomorrow's six figure income salary with two kids to go through college. they will not be hipsters for long. melissa: there's a new waffle taco, comes with a side of syrup. as big as the dorritos tacos?ov. are you getting it? >> no. melissa: totally getting it. that's all the money we have for you today. we'll see you back here tomorrow. you guys were fantastic. here comes "the willis report." gerri: hello issue everybody. i'm gerri willis. tonight on "the willis report," the long arm of the irs stretching further and further tonight, why they are looking for more information from not just political groups, but you. also, if stocks are not your thing, how to put your money into alternative investments. and jolie took a drastic step to prevent breast cancer. we'll ask the doctor
on either in cincinnati or elsewhere in the irs. melissa: yeah. president obama keeps pointing out that treasury secretary jack lew asked for the resignation of the acting irs commissioner. that is steven miller. of course we learned later he was set to step down as acting commissioner within two weeks. >> that's right. melissa: steven miller. there he is. that is who we're talking about. does that make you feel any better, that he's out. >> not at all. no. i think it is concerning that he was aware of some of this information. that he did not share it with ways and means or other members of congress who had been inquiring about this issue. he has been brought up before ways and means and testified on said he was unaware of these issues. now at the time that might have been true but he subsequently learned about these and he did not go back to congress to inform them. to me that is very concerning. now he is gone but the situation is not better. i mean we still don't know what the causes are of this investigation, of these attacks and this narrow focus on a certain set of groups. a
address that issue as well. second question deals directly with gordon's point about kicking the can down the road. alleys not to agree. on the other hand, obama's administration knew. [inaudible]. they all knew the time schedule. based had to start the process meant two years earlier we wouldn't be in the situation where he had to kick the bucket -- >> don't kick the bucket. [laughter] >> sorry about that. but anyway, you wouldn't have to do the two-year delay. and i was wondering coming in the, what happened there and who failed, and why didn't we get that? >> right here. >> i'm wondering if there's an open or secret agreement with south korea that a unified korea will not have nuclear weapons, that it will not inherit the north's nuclear weapons. and more importantly, if such an agreement exists, does china know about it? my thought here is that if a unified korea will not be a nuclear weapons power, it is that much less likely to intervene, to prop up the kim regime. >> okay, thank you. rob. >> rob warren. i would like to ask on then once, and that is the proposition that came out of
top down from the president. everyone is saying we have to deal with these problems at the level of the agency or doj investigators. the fact that washington hears obama every time we talk about government suggest just how divided our politics are. >> julian, when you see a law that says a social welfare organization has to be exclusively in the business of social welfare, seems to me if you're at the irs and you're granting tax exempt status on that basis, the word party appearing on the application is suspicion enough, whether that is democratic party, republican party, tea party, communist party, a party is a political organization with political objectives, it is not a social welfare organization. >> that's right, and you're right and you're correct, lawrence, in your interpretation of the law, it has been honored in the breach. what is not clear, who has standing to challenge it to bring it in compliance with the letter of the law as opposed to how the agencies have been implementing this law for the last 40 or 50 years. that's point one. >> julian, let me interject there, j
make similar solicitations? what specific steps has health and human services taken to ensure the obama administration will not favor businesses and organizations that gave money or punish those that did not donate? you know, madam president, prior to the latest efforts by secretary sebelius to shake down the health industry, well, she has a history of questionable decisions. back in september of 2010, health insurance companies started informing customers, their customers how much the president's health care law would increase the premiums of these individuals. so the secretary responded by warning insurers that the administration would be keeping track of their actions and that some companies might be -- quote -- "excluded from health insurance exchanges in 2014." that was not an idle threat. medicare's chief actuary had predicted that in the future, essentially all americans would buy health insurance through the government exchange. well, the president -- the secretary seemed to be threatening that any insurers telling customers the reason behind premium increases, which, of course,
